Sundowns in Tuesday's Premiership clash at the BidVest Stadium in
Johannesburg, despite coming off a win against Kaizer Chiefs.
The Clever Boys beat Amakhosi 1-0
last Saturday in their Telkom Knockout semi-final courtesy of a James
Keene goal. Mlambo was later voted Man-of-the-Match for his display.
Despite the morale-boosting triumph against an in-form Glamour Boys
outfit, the 26-year-old is taking nothing for granted ahead of facing an
always talented and dangerous Sundowns team.
Speaking to reporters, he said: "We have to respect every opponent

approach and fighting spirit.
"Hopefully, Lady Luck will be on our side again. It's never easy
playing teams like Sundowns, Chiefs and Pirates. You always have to
fight, grind or whatever it takes to get a win."
Currently, the Students occupy 15th place after a difficult start to
the campaign, although signs are there of improving fortunes. Meanwhile,
the Brazilians are in eighth place after losing three of their last
